I wouldn't trust anyone who can't accurately select the appropriate form of their/there/they're with my ECU.

I wouldn't be worried so much about a tuner's grammar. But I would be worried about picking a random tuner off ksl, with whom I have not heard any recommendations.

There are lots of Scammers out there. Maybe someone has had experience with this guy and he's just trying to make an honest buck.

Wow, you just misspelled congratulations, your, grammar and policeman. You also didn't use proper punctuation in several places. Your distain for proper grammar is very evident.

Well done.

As to spelling/grammar, I take it as a general indication of a professional's level of maturity and intelligence. Someone who takes pride in their work will go to extra lengths to ensure he or she puts forward a good public face.

That's the double standard of web forums. The only ones who get promoted paid for the advertising space--to babysit a bunch of whiney bitches that sit on a thesaurus to reach the keyboard. I own my own site to keep the bitching to a minimum...

i could give two craps less about grammar most of the time, but i just like to try to correct people who are trying to be "grammatically correct" or they correct others
its just kind of a "in your face" thing that makes me giggle inside

I didn't correct anyone. I pointed out a glaring flaw in a public solicitation for business. If you want to look like an idiot by mis-spelling words and using poor grammar on a forum, go right ahead. But if you want to earn my business, the best way is to mind your P's and Q's and not blatantly insult the competition in an advertisement.

that's because in Texas 2WD to AWD dyno's are the same ratio as Caucasians to African Americans in Utah.
